Catching up with the most recent Trump lies

I’ve been meaning to catch up; there are just so many Trump lies it’s hard to keep track. This New York Times article summarizes it best:

He has asserted that construction has begun on his border wall (it has not), that he is one of the most popular American presidents in history (he is not), that he “always” opposed the Iraq war (he did not), that the stock market reopened the day after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 (it did not), that his tax cut was the largest in history (it was not) and that the United States is the only country that guarantees citizenship to those born here (it is not).

Take a look:

Bizarre new Trump lies at press event cabinet meeting

Trump called in reporters today for what he billed as his first full Cabinet meeting. He started with an opening statement filled with his usual boastful, easily disproved lies.

For example, Trump said, “Never has there been a president, with few exceptions … who has passed more legislation, done more things.”

The truth, however, is that Congress, which is controlled by his party, hasn’t passed any major legislation yet.

Trump also praised his plan for the “single biggest tax cut in American history,” even though he hasn’t proposed a plan and Congress hasn’t acted on one.

Then he said “no one would have believed” his election could have created so many new jobs over the past seven months (1.1 million), even though more jobs (1.3 million) were created in the previous seven months.

After that he had cabinet officers one by one praise him in a way that is being much mocked around the Internet today. See, for example, New York Senator Charles Schumer’s 23 second parody with his staff.  It’s worth taking a look at.
